Happy Friday!

Finally a break from craft & antique shows this weekend. I cannot wait for Thanksgiving dinner with the family, some movies with the husband and the cat herd, and unfortunately, getting ready for winter (BOO!!!). Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. To get things started, here are a couple of photos that had me mesmerized over on KK Living

Foyers with painted wainscoting/wood paneling

Some of you may not believe this, but after reviewing everything I thought I had decided on for the flooring on my main floor, I made another decision. Brace yourselves.....I AM GOING TO PAINT OUT MY MAHOGANY WAINSCOTING! (You can revisit that awfulness in this post) I realized that if I am going to redo all of this flooring that I am totally unhappy with, how can I keep this mahogany that I really REALLY don't like? It will be a big job that I can hopefully hire someone to take care of so I do not end up in the mental hospital down the road, and I have not yet come up with a plan for the colour. I figure I will deal with re-staining the floor, see what the result of that is, and then find something that works with it and the Farrow & Ball lotus wallpaper I am dying to use for the upper parts of the wall. So on this note, I thought I would share some photos of foyers with painted out wainscoting and wood paneling that I came across while doing a little research. (Dear gawd, what have I gotten myself into!)

Happy Friday!

I desperately want to throw some black paint on something. Photo by Debi Treloar for the book Handmade Home by Mark & Sally Bailey. 

P.S. I published a post on my page yesterday mostly about some of my latest decor aquisitions. Feel free to have a peek. And Happy Friday!!!


Noteworthy from Cloth & Kind

I adore this laundry room - particularly the sink set-up and the light fixture. *drool*

Afriad to go with dark walls? Why not give it a try on the trim instead? Talk about a bold, graphic statement!

Best blue

This wallpaper is beautiful. Would be amazing with navy glossy trim. Hex tile floor is a bonus.

Colour coded

Gisbert Pöppler is an architect and interior designer based in Berlin whose portfolio is....jaw-dropping. Exuberant flourishes are tempered with Northern European restraint, creating harmonious hybrids of unexpected elegance. If you are one to err on the side of colour, then feast your eyes on these spaces. Art deco, mid-century mixed with every colour combination you could think of. And somehow, it just works. But I think that's because the architecture is as bold and ornate as the colours. Attempt this in your cookie-cutter house in the burbs and you will likely fail miserably.
